Amerlux, a design-and-manufacture lighting company, has announced a partnership with Vyv, a health tech company whose signature continuous-use, non-UV antimicrobial light technology will be added into Amerlux’s lighting fixtures. The partnership represents a groundbreaking venture for Amerlux, which in recent months has sought to broaden its product portfolio in response to customer demand for lighting that can help clean environments. Amerlux will integrate Vyv’s antimicrobial light technology into a variety of existing and new product lines. The antimicrobial lighting targets microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, yeast, and mold while also meeting international standards for continual and unrestricted use around people, animals, and plants.
Utilizing a spectrum composed of visible light, this proprietary technology works around the clock to fight off microorganisms by inhibiting their growth and ultimately destroying these microbes. It is ideal for high-traffic public areas where people congregate, such as airports, hospitals, hotels, gyms, and schools. Independent third-party studies, along with research commissioned by Vyv have shown a reduction of more than 90% in surface contamination across these settings when used on a continual basis.
Amerlux creates bold lighting solutions that add warmth and brilliance to the world. The design-and-manufacture company builds long-term relationships with architects, facility managers, and lighting designers by taking every complex problem personally. Its portfolio includes innovative interior and exterior lighting products that deliver striking aesthetics and rich performance through advanced engineering.
